The issue of mortality/immortality has been a thread that runs throughout my work.
I have always been interested in human anatomy because it is an attempt to figure out what is beneath the surface of the skin: I am interested in probing beyond surface experience.
With the projection work, I am projecting the interior onto the exterior with the intention of inverting and confounding insides and outsides. Combining dichotomies, a double take creates a third-take or whole. I am interested in unifying the polarities of inner/outer realities, life/death, mortality/immortality, mind/body, body/spirit.
I am looking at scientific representation and how it is imposed upon the body. We demand some sense of order in the world. And we are always defeated. This is the human condition. Scientific/technological progress particularly since the late 19th century has reinforced the schism between the concrete and the intangible, privileging physical absolutes and human authority over spiritual considerations.
